Most recently, this quest led me to John Freida's Dream Curls Spray. I read about it in a beauty magazine (possibly Allure, I don't remember), and was intrigued.
After my experience with the foam hair color, I was a little reluctant to give ol' JF another go. Honestly, it was the price point that swayed me. At $5.39, it was worth a shot.
The spray was easy to apply to my just washed hair, and reminds me of a leave-in conditioner. The formula is alcohol-free and certainly left my locks softer. They were also more smooth and the next morning my corona of frizz was much subdued. In fact, I had actual waves adorning my hair.
Verdict: Worth the $5.39. Performs like a much more expensive product. Will go into my regular rotation of hair care products.
Where to Buy: Target, Walmart, Walgreens.
